Owned and run by a pack of Angel's Share expats, this dark wood-paneled downstairs lounge bills itself as an "authentic bar." That means the straight-lined, Tokyo-style bar fronts a mesmerizing array of liquors, the deep, high-backed booths make good conversation spots, and each drink is carefully and lovingly crafted. Each drink is prepared as carefully and intricately as any gourmet chef would create a fine entrťe: the drinks are poured, mixed, stirred, and blended with Japanese ingredients. To continue the music theme of the barís name, the drinks are all named after jazz compositions. One of the cocktails thatís sure to hit the right note is the aptly titled Momentís Notice: not only John Coltraneís infamous jazz piece but also a perfect harmony of plum wine, sake and peach liqueur thatís ideal for an impromptu nightcap. Ask one of the masterful bartenders for a Groovy: shiso-infused vodka mixed with yuzu juice, garnished with a shiso leaf, and cooled with hand-chiseled ice chunks.
